Presi- dent Eisenhower surrounded himself today with a team of defense and financial experts and began a thorough, item by item check on a 1961 mili- tary budget of some bil- lion. Sec. of Defense Neil McEl- roy and a planeload of Wash- ington officials flew in with the defense budget and motor- ed to Eisenhower's vacation headquarters' at Augusta Na- tional Golf club. The flight landed at the Augusta airport at a.m., 25 minutes behind schedule. So the spending seminar was correspondingly late in get- ting underway in the trophy room at the golf club. The president is getting a work-play vacation at the club before his December tour of 11 nations in Europe, Asia and Africa. Eisenhower summoned nine other officials from Washing- ton, including Budget Direc- tor Maurice Stans and the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, Gen. Nathan Twin- ing. In this year's budget, for the June 30, total spending is esti- mated at nearly billion and defense costs at nearly S41 billion. The advance word in Washington was that the administration wants to hold defense spending in the new budget at billion.

"But that must be done if civilization is to survive. It is nothing less than this im- mense and long term project on which we are now engag- ed." Sec.

Nelson's strategic in- come tax withholding bill be- fore the state legislature. Speaker George Molinaro, head of the Democratic-con- trolled state assembly, made the forecast in a speech to the whip in the upper house of the legislature, boasted that he and his mates have put through the GOP chamber 65 per cent of Nelson's program.

Kennedy, an unannounced candidate for the Democratic Murder Clues Sought Garden City, Kan. In a farm home far off the beat- en path of this vast wheat area four members of a respected well- to do family were" murder- cd over weekend. Herbert Clut- ter. 48, his wife, Bonnie, 45, their 16- year-old Clutter daughter, Nancy Mae, and 15- year-old son Kcnyon, were bound hand and foot and gag- ged. All were shot in the head and Clutter's throat was slashed. The victims were slain by a shotgun. Neither the gun nor the weapon with which Clut- ter's throat was cut have been found. Police don't know who kill- ed the Clutters. They have- n't determined the motive. Nothing in the house was in disarray. No valuables ap- peared to be missing. Money which Nancy had placed in an envelope for church lay on her bedroom dresser along- side a diamond ring. The coroner. Dr. Robert Fenton. said Mrs. Clutter. 45, and Nancy apparently were not molested sexually. He placed the time of death be- tween 11 p.m. Saturday and 2 a.m. yesterday. Girls Find Bodies Two of Nancy's school- mates. Mary Ewalt and Susan Kidwcll, found the bodies. The girls customarily rode to church with the Clutter fam- ily and went to the house yes- terday for that purpose. When no one answered their knock, the girls entered the house. The Clutters were commu- nity leaders. Clutter was a founder of the Kansas Association of Wheat Growers. He was a past presi- dent of the National Wheat Jrowers association, presi- dent of the Garden City Equi- ty Exchange, a director of .he Consumers' Cooperative. President Eisenhower ap- pointed him in 1954 to the fed- eral farm credit board. Clutter declined reappomtment two years later. Nancy and Kcnyon attend- ed high school in Holcomb, a village of 270 population a mile from their home. Both were honor students and Nan- cy last week won the school's good citizenship award. The family apparently had been realy to retire when they were attacked. All except Kenyon were in pajamas. The boy wore blue jeans and a white T-shirt. Cold Snap May Blast Fox Cities By Nightfall Montana Storm to Move Swiftly With Record Low Expected A new Arctic storm swept out of Canada into Montana Sunday and is now blowing toward the Fox Cities with a record cold snap expected. Temperatures by nightfall here are expected to be 10 above zero and zero or below by Tuesday morning. High Winds The cold wave is the first recorded before the 23rd of November, the Green Bay weather bureau said. A record cold wave of 5 below zero was recorded in November of 1951 after the 23rd in clear, calm aid over a snow cover. High winds, blowing snow and slight flurries are expect- ed with the cold blast. "This is a severe storm and a cold the weather bu- reau said.

Democratic Paper Says Ike Used Rigged TV Program in 1952 Dem- ocratic Digest says spot com- mercials used by President Eisenhower during the 1952 campaign were a form of rig- ged TV program. A Republi- can spokesman disagrees. The excharige developed yesterday when the Demo- cratic Digest, official Demo- cratic National Committee magazine, accused the Repub- licans of rigging the famous "Eisenhower Answers Amer- ica" spot commercials during the 1952 campaign. The Digest said his appear- ances during 1952 had been carefully prepared to appear spontaneous. A spokesman for the Re- publican National committee immediately commented: "The Democratic Digest has been asking its own ques- tions and supplying its own answers for six years now without any noticeable contri- bution to the truth. "In 'rigging' this story, they haven't made it any more believable than the others." luth at 9 a.m. had 8 degrees with 39 miles an hour winds.

Attorneys for the eight, a- sertmg they were denied a fair trial because of "mas- sive, prejudicial" publicity, appealed to the high tribunal! to overturn their convictions. The appeal further urged the court to rule on whether the indictments against .the eight should be quashed and the case dismissed because of asserted effects of publici- ty on the grand and trial jur- ies. Problem in Neenah Arrange Mercy Flight For Mother Dog, Pups Neenah Police today, made arrangements for a mercy flight Tuesday and the Hewitt Machine com- pany offered the loan of its airplane to fly a man. and his equipment here to aid a mother and her four babies. Attempts by police to help the mother this morning were futile as the mother a stray mongrel dog re- sisted all attempts to leave the comfort of the area un- derneath the enclosed porch at the Clarence Schroeder home on Harrison street. The dog dug a hole to get underneath the porch some- ti'me Sunday night and dur- ing the night gave birth to at least four puppies. At least, that is all the puppies Al Monette, Neenah dog- catcher, was able to count when he and a Neenah po- liceman tried to get the dog and puppies out.

The elevation of Archbishop Meyer, 56, had been expected since he succeeded the late Samuel Cardinal Stritch as archbishop of Chicago just a year ago today.

Holds Other Posts The new cardinal also holds two high Roman Catholic posts. He is a member of the National Catholic Welfare Conference at Washington, D. C., and is chairman of its de- partment of education. Archbishop Muench, 70, has been representing the Vatican as papal nuncio to Germany since World war II but has re- tained his post as head of the North Dakota archdiocese.

Coast guard helicopters sighted several bodies float- ing amid widely-scattered wreckage. The crash was the second involving a National Airlines plane in six years. Another plane crashed in the gulf in 1953 taking 46 lives. Capt. Charles H. Ruby, chief pilot for National, spot- ted the plane's wreckage about 108 miles east-southeast of New Orleans. His radio re- port said there was no sign of survivors. At a.m., the cost guard issued an advisory locating the wreckage 100 miles south- east of New Orleans, at the mouth of the Mississippi river. Life Raft Seen The coast guard's earlier re- port said its planes had spot- ted an oil slick and life raft, but no survivors. The plane, National Flight 967, vanished in a fog that en- veloped the area so quickly that Moisant International airport at New Orleans had to amend its midnight fore- cast? The plane was already overdue at fog-shrouded, Moi- sant when the amended fore- cast came out. The plane was about a half-' hour out of Moisant when it dropped off the radar screen that had been tracking it. The aircraft was flying at feet over the 450-mile over- water route from Miami.
